This is a genuine Samsung Fast Charger (Samsung store confirmed this).

I purchased one and took it to the local Samsung store to confirm authenticity before using it. I have been using it without issue.
If you purchase one from the Samsung store it will cost you £15 so at £4.99 including delivery in my opinion is a good deal.

There is no Data Cable included but that isn't an issue (for me).

I am unsure how many they have for sale.

I'm still not sure how much I'd trust the authenticity of this.

Doesn't inspire confidence when they can't spell "guaranteed" on the picture correctly.

In all fairness spelling doesn't affect the authenticity of the product.
Still doesn't inspire confidence, it could be legitimate, but I'll not take the gamble.

These are also second hand, as confirmed in the listing.

That's your choice. My phone hasn't gone bang nor has the wireless charger. I was dubious initially but after having it confirmed as kosher. I'm happy with the price and product.

That is why I purchased originally and confirmation from the store the legitimacy of it, I was happy what I paid.

​Loool! That typo is unforgivable. It's not even a missed or a rearranged word!

Sounds like weird science to me; they mixed the genes of a gorilla, a rodent, a termite and a centipede to create a 'GURATANTEED'.

self promotion probably beat him at his own game buy opening a case if its fake and get your money back
i bought a similar one to this from ebay with a cable (181922811956). I asked the seller if it was genuine samsung and below was his response. Will compare to my original samsung fast charger if it arrives in time.

"Hello 
Thanks for asking.
These are genuine bulk packaged accessories. They come in batches of 100 and not individual and come in poly packaging instead of retail packaging and are sample tested instead of individual testing. 
Hence they are cheaper than the retail packs that are available in currys etc.
Hope that helps.
Thanks "

I've got one of these from eBay to go with my French Note 4. It looks the part but it's definitely fake as it has a serial number which you can find on many others on google images (serial numbers should be unique). Fake Samsung accessories are a big business and many of them are virtual identical which leads me to believe some are probably produced after hours in the factories that Samsung actually contracts to but possibly with inferior materials / workmanship. Anyway, Samsung doesn't seem very bothered with this and if you look at many accessories on Amazon (even those sold by Amazon) you'll find various reports of them being fake. Given that Samsung is less than bothered at the moment, do you think they train all their store staff to be experts in distinguishing things which often look identical?
The Samsung shop man would have no more idea if it was fake than you would unless he checked the serial number.

I wouldn't trust Samsung store employees either... Most just nod and smile to whatever you say, then continue trying to sell something you don't need.

Quickest way to find out if it really is genuine, get on the phone with the seller and say you will be sending it to Trading Standards for inspection before using it (they check to see if it complies with UK HSE electrical safety regulations)...

Usually they own up after this, and beg you to not buy the product
Should put 'refurb' in the title. If you're happy with the product then that's great, but surely you can understand buyers being dubious.

Yep, sounds like a desperate attempt to get heat.

This will be as genuine as a £13 note.

Hardly an engineer, it's someone who replaces parts.

Highly doubt they're trained in the arts of charging.
